If you are interested there is a "little" race going on right now in the Pacific NorthWest called SEVENTY48. 70 miles (Tacoma to Port Townsend) with maximum time limit of 48 hours. Started at 5:30 pm. All types of paddle craft.

Right now Greg Barton and Kevin Olney (Epic V10 double) are duking it out with an unlimited OC-6 and an open water rowing double. 4th place team is also a double ski (Fenn Elite S double). At average speeds so far this race is looking like it will be over in less than 10 hours.

Enjoy.

Yes! If I am interpreting the results correctly, with a time of 9 hrs, 39 minutes. Amazing!

If I read the rules correctly greg and kevin are going to split about $15,000 in prize money. Isn’t that right? Registration fee is 100 per boat, it all goes in the purse, winner takes all. Pretty good payday!

I think there were 117 entries, so $11,700. Not bad for a night's work! I wonder how many skis Greg has to sell and how many decks Kevin has to build to bring in that amount.
